Hi,,

Can anyone please advise if the BD3E bungalows are perimeter ones with good view?

We are going to stay in Satara for first time so are very much excited :)

They are not the ones by the fence, I don't think they have a view.

The E at the end of the accommodation code usually means the veranda has been enclosed. If you want a perimeter unit look for a U or V at the end.

NB - these are just generalisations, camps do differ so you need to check the description.

We had one of those on Christmas Day. We sat on the bench just before sunset and 2 ellies casually walked by, then a heard of buffalo. We then went off and had our braai and returned when it was dark. The bench is about 1 to 1.5m from the fence. While we were sitting there in the pitch dark, my wife goes stiff and whispers there is the shape of a hyena at the fence. Turned on the torch and sure enough there it was. You could hear it sniffing! That was an experience I will never forget!

Good day ya' all!

We will be staying at Satara in mid October. We are staying in a Guest Cottage GC6BD.

I don't know Satara camp that well, we stayed in Bungalows in 2007. Can any one recommend a specific cottage, that will have a good view? Or just give any details about the location of the guest cottages?

Any info will be appreciated!
Hanlie

Hi All
Can anyone who has stayed in this type of unit recently advise if cutlery, crockery, pots, pans etc are provided in the kitchen?
Many thanks

As I said Glen, they are really very well equipped...........much better than the standard units.
The ones we have stayed in have also had full ovens and 4 hotplates, unlike most standard units that only have 2 hotplates and no oven!!

Also your own braai and lovely shaded stoeps.

When are you going? :thumbs_up:

Unless I'm mistaken a BD2N unit is in A circle. Number 14 and 15 are closest to the fence :D
Keep an eye out for the African Wild Cat that patrols around the area :D
I hope you enjoy it thebush :D

The highest numbers are furthest from reception. So less people!
Number 179 is right at the end at the corner of the two fences :thumbs_up:

I like 167. It is in the middle where the two "half circles" meet. The braai is right next to the fence and the rest of the bungalows are sort of behind you instead of next to you.

We've recently stayed at Satara in the B circle in a BD3B unit :lol: and really enjoyed the camp. Had 2 dinner guests: a honey badger and a grey cat. Could this we an African wild cat? Much too fast for a photo :cam: , sorry. But this cat was light grey, I thought they were brownish and slightly larger than a domestic feline.

I eagerly await the experts to comment...

I know there have been reports of AWC seen in Satara camp recently.
Sure there can be slight colour variations especially if seen at night in poor light.



Yes, we've seen AWC everynight we stayed in Satara last March.
